School is back in session and the tips of the trees are beginning to turn. This has always been one of my favorite times because, as a Yooper, the 90 degree days of summer turn me into a puddle of grumpiness. The 0 degree days of winter turn me into a brick of grumpiness. It is the season between that is my favorite. I love to see new pencils and notebooks in the stores as kids rejoin their friends in a new year of learning. The Chamber would like to wish good luck in the upcoming year to the students at Ishpeming, Negaunee, NICE and Republic/Michigamme - make this a memorable year.
